Duany jets into UK for sustainable communities roadshow
March 1 2010
A trio of urban communities are planned for Grandhome & Whitestripes, Aberdeen; Ladyfield, Dumfries and Lochgelly, Fife, in a bid to raise the quality of life in those areas whilst reducing environmental impact.
Largest of the schemes is Aberdeen which would see 7,000 homes developed on greenfield land on the outskirts of the city.
Duany is in the country as part of the Scottish Sustainable Communities Initiative, a government backed policy to reduce carbon emissions and help the country meet climate change targets.
Of his cross country tour Duany said: “"Given the diversity of sites it should be possible to explore a broad range of techniques, all in the hopes of contributing to the new planning system being developed for Scotland.
"I very much enjoy working with the spirit of innovation and debate which is in the air."
